CTA Holiday Train schedule: It's all Green Line this weekend - and a splash of Orange

The CTA's Sprint Holiday Train will travel the Green Line on Black Friday and this coming Saturday. The final Green Line run comes on Tuesday, Dec. 1. But since the special bedecked train is housed at Midway, the run will start on the Orange Line.

  • The train will make one trip from Midway to Harlem/Lake, via downtown.
  • The train will make one trip from Harlem/Lake to Cottage Grove.
  • The train will make one trip from Cottage Grove to Midway, via downtown Loop.

Also this Saturday will be photo day on the Green Line, when kids can have their photo taken with Santa. Here is Friday's schedule.

The train generally operates from about 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. on weekends and 3 p.m to 7 p.m. on weekdays, and will make stops at all stations along the respective routes. Check the CTA Holiday Train page later this week for detailed schedules, and times for the photo session.
